Trains were stopped for around two hours last night between Kings Norton and Redditch as London Midlands trains reported via twitter that a person had been hit by a train.

Details are starting to come in this morning that the fatality was a man and the incident happened near Kings Norton Station, on the Northfield side.

More information as we get it.
